Phd is your classic "no thrills" kind of place. Located by UIC next to their forum which hosts events almost every week, they seem to always have a consistent group in there at night. The best part about this place is their patio. They do not have a food menu but you can rbing in your own and they have grills if you want to make your own. Half of the patio has a tent over it with tv's inside. the other half has sitting areas, and heating towers for those great fall nights. 

The bar itself has a small draft selection but a solid bottle choice. My favorite part of the bar is the back "study area" that has a tv hooked up to Nintendo Game Cube and can be marked off for a private get together.
